Default Jack the ripper - The definitive story

Saw this last night on tv. Great computer graphics. Very well done.

Arguably, the best Jtr doco to date.
Christer's "Cross" dress up Conspiracy TV show was for me the most enjoyable to watch.

I recorded it on the DVR. Haven't seen it yet, but I'm really looking forward to it.

Just remember to pause the programme for a minute when Lechmere appears. Otherwise you will see Robert Paul arriving together with Lechmere, and that was emphatically never the case.

If it was me, Iīd pause the programme for around nine minutes.

Thereīs also a lamp in the street opposite the Nichols murder spot, that should not be there.

Otherwise, it is a really good show with lots of atmosphere.

I actually found it quite amateurish. It was by no means accurate with lighting and the graphics were just awful. The only way to enjoy it is to turn off the picture and leave the audio up.

Yes the CGI is bad but this is amazing - whoever made this clearly did their research. It even casts doubt on Israel Schwartz and addresses things like the Chapman time of death controversy.

Wow! Did we watch the same show...? The graphics were, I believe, made by Jake Luukanen, and he is generally held very high in regard - and for a reason, methinks.

Maybe I should up my demands somewhat...?

I might need to bring mine down. When they advertised it would be just like the real thing I was expecting a little more than green screen with high contrast. Like you said, the Lechmere part was not exactly accurate with alot of things. I just expected more.

Yeah, I was totally dosappointed with the Lechmere part. Itīs a complete letdown, whatever one thinks of the rest. I keep asking myself how people could read the Lechmere material and come up with something so woefully lacking in veracity. But it is a huge material, and many things can slip.

Honestly, when in the leadup to the Chapman murder they showed a CGI recreation of a man sitting on a step and cutting leather off his shoe with a knife, I shrieked with delight and woke up my sleeping wife. How many other documents have RICHARDSON in them?
